Certified Technology Program
The Flex Certified Technology Program (CTP) is designed to provide our suppliers with an objective guide to which technology solutions may be best suited to their businesses, both now and as they grow. They can also take advantage of special packages developed for the Flex community, discounted pricing and accelerated implementation.
The CTP is a resource built for Flex suppliers, to use as a tool for improving their organization’s—and supply chain’s—efficiency so they can work better with Flex and all of their supply chain partners.
Flex created the CTP to support our vision of Limitless Scale and Repeatable Execution. Achieving this vision requires us to enable our supply chain partners through the effective use of information technology. It is critical for Flex and our partners to continuously improve our supply chain scalability, repeatability, cost, lead time, and customer service. Many companies struggle with how to make technology work to achieve these benefits, and the CTP provides a valuable resource for technology advice and assistance.
Our partner DWG has identified a spectrum of solutions already designed to integrate with Flex and meet our standards. Our suppliers can choose from different levels of complexity, support requirements, and affordability to ensure they have a solution that meets their specific needs in order to automate and integrate their supply chain operations with Flex. These certified solutions help automate the transmission of transactions, including forecasting documents, purchase order information, shipment notifications, and electronic invoices.
The CTP Marketplace features solution videos and demonstrations, solution overviews, technology comparisons, transparent pre-negotiated pricing, regular webinars, a trading community blog, a LinkedIn forum (networking, business development, and casual conversations), and weekly aggregation of relevant industry news and insights.
